Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
The branch of physics that deals with sound and sound waves. In medicine it is often applied in procedures in speech and hearing studies. With regard to the environment, it refers to the characteristics of a room, auditorium, theatre, building, etc. that determines the audibility or fidelity of sounds in it. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
Any device or element which converts an input signal into an output signal of a different form. Examples include the microphone, phonographic pickup, loudspeaker, barometer, photoelectric cell, automobile horn, doorbell, and underwater sound transducer. (McGraw Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
The resistance to the flow of either alternating or direct electrical current.
The visualization of deep structures of the body by recording the reflections or echoes of ultrasonic pulses directed into the tissues. Use of ultrasound for imaging or diagnostic purposes employs frequencies ranging from 1.6 to 10 megahertz.
Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.
A technique of measuring the dielectric properties of materials, which vary over a range of frequencies depending on the physical properties of the material. The technique involves measuring, over a range of frequencies, ELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE and phase shift of an electric field as it passes through the material.

Confirmation of deafness in infancy. (1/154)

AIM: To assess delay in confirming hearing impairment in infants identified by universal neonatal screening and to investigate the causes. PATIENTS: Infants identified from 25 199 babies screened from January 1992 to December 1997. METHODS: A two stage transient evoked oto-acoustic emission test (TEOAE), with a threshold auditory brainstem response (ABR) recording undertaken on those who failed. The screen identified infants with a permanent congenital hearing impairment (PCHI) averaging 40 dBnHL or worse in the best ear. Those with less impairment were also ascertained. The positive predictive value (PPV) of the ABR test and measures of delay between identification and eventual diagnosis were analysed. RESULTS: A targeted PCHI was found in 1.18/1000 neonates. The PPV of the ABR for confirming a targeted PCHI was 100% when the ABR threshold was >/= 80 dBnHL. Nine of 11 infants with this threshold had severe or profound permanent deafness. The delay from ABR to audiological certainty was about 1 month-diagnosis was confirmed around 3 months. There was uncertainty when the ABR was 40-80 dBnHL. The PPV was 60% and 8% when the ABR thresholds were 70 dBnHL and 50 dBnHL, respectively. 85 of 111 infants with ABR thresholds in this range had a temporary conductive impairment. Their early diagnosis depended upon the type and degree of hearing impairment and diagnosis was delayed to about 8 months in these infants. CONCLUSIONS: Hearing impairments identified by universal screening are delayed in all but those with severe or profound bilateral PCHI. This delay can be reduced by applying in early infancy a battery of audiological tests and requires further exploration.  (+info)

Otolaryngological findings in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction and implications for prognosis. (2/154)

AIM: To investigate otolaryngological abnormalities associated with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and their effect on the prognosis. METHODS: 65 consecutive cases of CNLDO were followed up with routine otorhinolaryngological examination with tympanometry. RESULTS: Otitis media with effusion (OME) and uvula bifida were detected in 44.6% and 9.2% of the children, respectively. Medical treatment and probing were less effective in patients with OME (p<0. 05). CONCLUSIONS: OME and uvula bifida are significant anomalies associated with CNLDO and the former has a marked effect on the prognosis. This finding may help to determine the patients who will need further treatment after massage and probing.  (+info)

Tympanometry for diagnosis and treatment of otitis media in general practice. (3/154)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of tympanometry for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of otitis media in general practice. METHODS: The results from otoscopy performed by 40 physicians in general practice in Vejle County, Denmark were combined with the clinical condition and this was recorded as the preliminary decision about diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. Subsequently, tympanometry was performed in 3176 children aged between 1 month and 16 years; a total of 6352 tympanometries. With this added knowledge, a final decision about diagnosis, treatment and follow-up was recorded. The practitioners were trained in performing tympanometry including the interpretation of the results. Simultaneously, they were involved in the establishment of guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of otitis media in general practice. The main outcome measures were changes between preliminary and final decisions about diagnoses, treatments and follow-up regimens. RESULTS: Tympanometry was performed successfully in 87.7% of the children, and in 26.4% changes in diagnoses were found. However, tympanometry did not influence the distributions of the main outcome measures in the sample as a whole. Uncomplicated cases were checked in general practice and referrals to specialists were not increased. CONCLUSION: Tympanometry can be performed successfully in general practice after appropriate instruction. In 26.4% of children, the diagnoses were changed, which may result in more appropriate treatment and follow-up. Tympanometry is a clinically relevant supplement to the examination of a child in general practice.  (+info)

Behaviour and developmental effects of otitis media with effusion into the teens. (4/154)

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether behavioural or cognitive sequelae of otitis media with effusion (OME) continue into late childhood and the early teens (11-18 years). SETTING: Data from a large multipurpose birth cohort study: the Dunedin multidisciplinary health and development study. PARTICIPANTS: Around 1000 children from the study. The main independent variable of interest was otological status of the child up to age 9. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Parent and teacher rated behaviour problems, including antisocial, neurotic, hyperactive, and inattentive behaviours, and tests of academic achievement including intelligence quotient (IQ), reading, and spelling were available in a high proportion of the cohort at ages 11 to 18 years. RESULTS: After adjustments for covariates such as socioeconomic status, hyperactive and inattentive behaviour problems were evident as late as 15 years, and lower IQ associated with OME remained significant to 13 years. The largest effects were observed for deficits in reading ability between 11 and 18 years. CONCLUSIONS: No previous study considering behaviour problems as an outcome has followed children long enough to determine whether some of the early sequelae of OME are still present in the early to late teens. Some developmental sequelae of OME, particularly deficits in reading ability, can persist into late childhood and the early teens.  (+info)

Does early detection of otitis media with effusion prevent delayed language development? (5/154)

OBJECTIVE: To consider whether earlier detection of otitis media with effusion (OME) in asymptomatic children in the first 4 years of life prevents delayed language development. METHODS: MEDLINE and other databases were searched and relevant references from articles reviewed. Critical appraisal and consensus development were in accordance with the methods of the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care. RESULTS: No randomised controlled trials assessing the overall screening for OME and early intervention to prevent delay in acquiring language were identified, although one trial evaluated treatment in a screened population and found no benefit. The "analytic pathway" approach was therefore used, where evidence is evaluated for individual steps in a screening process. The evidence supporting the use of tools for early detection such as tympanometry, microtympanometry, acoustic reflectometry, and pneumatic otoscopy in the first 4 years of life is unclear. Some treatments (mucolytics, antibiotics, steroids) resulted in the short term resolution of effusions as measured by tympanometry. Ventilation tubes resolved effusions and improved hearing. Ventilation tubes in children with hearing loss associated with OME benefited children in the short term, but after 18 months there was no difference in comparison with those assigned to watchful waiting. Most prospective cohort studies that evaluated the association between OME and language development lacked adequate measurement of exposure or outcome, or suffered from attrition bias. Findings with regard to the association were inconsistent. CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to support attempts at early detection of OME in the first 4 years of life in the asymptomatic child to prevent delayed language development.  (+info)

Auditory system: Peripheral nonlinearity and central additivity, as revealed in the human stapedius-muscle reflex. (6/154)

Human stapedius-muscle contractions in response to 3-kHz, 20-msec tone bursts were determined indirectly by measuring the associated acoustic-impedance changes at the tympanic membrane with an acoustic bridge. The measurement was possible because the bridge practically eliminates the effect of the ear-canal air volume interposed between the tympanic membrane and the tip of the measuring tube. By using burst pairs, temporal additivity of the muscle responses was demonstrated both when the stimulus bursts were presented contralaterally to the measured impedance changes and when the first burst was presented ipsilaterally. The summation time constant was on the order of 200 msec, much longer than the twitch time constant of the muscle fibers. Therefore, the summation had to take place in a nucleus preceding the stapedius muscle. The magnitude of the muscle response obeyed a compressive function paralleling the loudness function up to sound pressure levels of at least 120 dB.  (+info)

Practical screening priorities for hearing impairment among children in developing countries. (7/154)

Routine screening for hearing impairment in childhood is now widespread in industrial countries, although there is considerable controversy over the most efficient techniques and procedures. In most developing countries, however, routine screening programmes for hearing impairment do not currently exist. The problems involved in implementing screening programmes in developing and industrial countries are very different, and in selecting screening procedures for a particular population the following factors have to be taken into consideration: the environmental test conditions; the availability of resources for equipment and the training of testers; the local attitudes towards disability; the level of hearing impairment that may cause handicaps; and the major types of pathology causing hearing impairment. We suggest that in developing countries children should be screened at school entry using a simple field audiometer and that the external ear be inspected for the presence of a discharge. There is an urgent need to develop reliable and simple screening procedures for infants and young children; where possible, all children should be screened for severe or significant hearing impairment before the age of 2 years. No screening should, however, be implemented until appropriate follow-up services are available.  (+info)

Impedance analysis of the organ of corti with magnetically actuated probes. (8/154)

An innovative method is presented to measure the mechanical driving point impedance of biological structures up to at least 40 kHz. The technique employs an atomic force cantilever with a ferromagnetic coating and an external magnetic field to apply a calibrated force to the cantilever. Measurement of the resulting cantilever velocity using a laser Doppler vibrometer yields the impedance. A key feature of the method is that it permits measurements for biological tissue in physiological solutions. The method was applied to measure the point impedance of the organ of Corti in situ, to elucidate the biophysical basis of cochlear amplification. The basilar membrane was mechanically clamped at its tympanic surface and the measurements conducted at different radial positions on the reticular lamina. The tectorial membrane was removed. The impedance was described by a generalized Voigt-Kelvin viscoelastic model, in which the stiffness was real-valued and independent of frequency, but the viscosity was complex-valued with positive real part, which was dependent on frequency and negative imaginary part, which was independent of frequency. There was no evidence for an inertial component. The magnitude of the impedance was greatest at the tunnel of Corti, and decreased monotonically in each of the radial directions. In the absence of inertia, the mechanical load on the outer hair cells causes their electromotile displacement responses to be reduced by only 10-fold over the entire range of auditory frequencies.  (+info)

Tympanometry provides useful quantitative information about the presence of fluid in the middle ear, mobility of the middle ear system, and ear canal volume. Its use has been recommended in conjunction with more qualitative information (e.g., history, appearance, and mobility of the tympanic membrane) in the evaluation of otitis media with effusion and to a lesser extent in acute otitis media. It also can provide useful information about the patency of tympanostomy tubes. Tympanometry is not reliable in infants younger than seven months because of the highly compliant ear canals of infants. Tympanogram tracings are classified as type A (normal), type B (flat, clearly abnormal), and type C (indicating a significantly negative pressure in the middle ear, possibly indicative of pathology). According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality guidelines on otitis media with effusion, the positive predictive value of an abnormal (flat, type B) tympanogram is between 49 and 99 percent. A type C curve
The present study reports densities (ρ), viscosities (η) and ultrasonic speeds (U) of pure dioxane (DOX), anisole (ANS), toluene (TOL) and ethylbenzene (ETB) and their binary liquid mixtures over the entire composition range at 293, 298, 303, 308 and 313 K. From the experimental data excess molar volume (VmE), excess intermolecular free length (LfE), excess adiabatic compressibility (βE) and excess acoustic impedance (ZE) have been computed. The excess values were correlated using Redlitch-Kister polynomial equation to obtain their coefficients and standard deviations (σ). With increase in temperature, the binary mixture of DOX+ANS shows larger deviations in βE, LfE and smaller deviations in ZE, VmE. These results suggest that ANS has strong molecular interactions with DOX than ETB and TOL.

In the past the exterior and interior noise level of vehicles has been largely reduced to follow stricter legislation and due to the demand of the customers. As a consequence, the noise quality and no longer the noise level inside the vehicle plays a crucial role. For an economic development of new powertrains it is important to assess noise quality already in early development stages by the use of simulation. Recent progress in NVH simulation methods of powertrain and vehicle in time and frequency domain provides the basis to pre-calculated sound pressure signals at arbitrary positions in the car interior. Advanced simulation tools for elastic multi-body simulation and novel strategies to measure acoustical transfer paths are combined to achieve this goal. In order to evaluate the obtained sound impression a roughness prediction model has been developed. The proposed roughness model is a continuation of the model published by Hoeldrich and Pflueger ...

Allocation was well concealed, and followup rates were high (95%). Participants provided outcome data with self completed questionnaires, and the researchers who collected and entered the data were blind to the participants allocation status. At the paediatric assessments, some parents talked about their childcare arrangements, and so we cannot exclude the possibility of bias in the assessment of child development. However, such a bias is unlikely for the results for otitis media, as the two paediatricians examined the printed tympanograms without any identifying information. Although the ratio of intervention to control families varied over the course of recruitment, this is unlikely to have resulted in bias since the availability of daycare places is not expected to have been related to any outcome variable.. The main study weakness is the lack of power because of our inability to achieve a sufficientlylarge sample size. This was an opportunistic evaluation of an anti-poverty strategy in a ...
Program to perform acoustic simulation using lumped parameter analysis. Also measures acoustical impedance such as acoustical flow impedance and acoustical surface impedance
An acoustic well logging tool is shown having a transmitter section and a receiver section spaced apart by a semi-rigid housing. The semi-rigid housing includes a number of rigid tubular members which are joined by interlocking lobes which permit relative movement between the tubular members but which prevent the separation thereof. Gaps between the interlocking lobes are filled with a connecting material which differs significantly in acoustic impedance from the material of the remainder of the housing, whereby acoustic energy passing from the transmitter section along the body of the tool is delayed and attenuated.
The book is concerned with properties such as density, refractive index, acoustic impedance and electrical conductivities of hydrocarbon substances.

Context: Blood pressure tracking has suggested that the difference in blood pressure between women and men begins to manifest during the adolescent period. It is therefore postulated that sex-related cardiac structural and functional differences that could predict future events may exist in the heart of offspring of parents with hypertension. Aims: This study aimed at evaluating the effects of sex difference on the heart of offspring of parents with hypertension. Settings and Design: Cross-sectional study. Participants and Methods: A group of offspring of parents with hypertension aged between 15 and 25 years were recruited for the study if they had normal blood pressure and gave consent. They had clinical, electrocardiography, and echocardiographic assessments. Results: Sixty-five participants consisting of 47 males and 18 females participated in the study. Mean systolic blood pressure was higher (P = 0.001) in the males compared with the females but the diastolic blood pressure was similar ...
With every hearing test, our audiologist runs a tympanogram. This measures the mobility of the eardrum and can give an indicator of middle ear health. A nice, healthy middle ear gives a Type A tympanogram, with a nice peak to indicate the eardrum is functioning properly. I actually only have one tympanogram with this configuration- this example is from Nolans right ear during a relatively fluid-free period of time. This was also shortly after his second PE tube fell out of the right ear ...

Ultrasonic testing uses the same principle as is used in naval SONAR and fish finders. Ultra-high frequency sound is introduced into the part being inspected and if the sound hits a material with a different acoustic impedance (density and acoustic velocity), some of the sound will reflect back to the sending unit and can be presented on a visual display. By knowing the speed of the sound through the part (the acoustic velocity) and the time required for the sound to return to the sending unit, the distance to the reflector (the indication with the different acoustic impedance) can be determined. The most common sound frequencies used in UT are between 1.0 and 10.0 MHz, which are too high to be heard and do not travel through air. The lower frequencies have greater penetrating power but less sensitivity (the ability to see small indications), while the higher frequencies dont penetrate as deeply but can detect smaller indications..

An ultrasonic probe particularly suitable for ultrasonic diagnostic equipments of the electronic scanning type is made up of a multiplicity of piezoelectric transducer elements, each in the shape of a rectangular plate with electrode films coated on both sides, arranged in a row at intervals and an acoustic impedance matching layer placed on the row of the transducer elements. The width-to-thickness ratio of each piezoelectric plate takes a value not greater than 0.8 and preferably between 0.4 and 0.7 so that the plate can vibrate in width expansion mode. It is highly preferable that the impedance matching layer has a laminated structure given by two layers which are different in acoustic impedance of the respective materials and individually have definite thicknesses.
Microscale elastic moduli, composition and density have rarely been determined at the same location for biological materials. In this paper, we have performed homotopic measurements to determine the physico-mechanical properties of a second primary molar specimen exhibiting sound and caries-affected regions. A microscale acoustic impedance map of a section through this sample was acquired using scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM). Scanning electron microscopy was then used to obtain mineral mass fraction of the same section using backscattered images. Careful calibration of each method was performed to reduce system effects and obtain accurate data. Resorption, demineralization and hypermineralization mechanisms were considered in order to derive relationships between measured mineral mass fraction and material mass density. As a result, microscale mass density was determined at the same lateral resolution and location as the SAM data. The mass density and the acoustic impedance were combined to ...

A system and method senses an in-vivo lumen using ultrasonic elements typically arranged in a ring or other similar structure. Position information may be collected. A set of reflectance data may be collected and used to form an image or representation of the lumen. In one example, the data is collected by an in-vivo autonomous capsule. Additionally, ultrasonic elements may be arranged in order to receive a mechanical characteristic of the tissue (e.g., acoustic impedance) rather than an image or representation.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Assessment of tympanometry in abnormalities of the tympanic membrane. AU - Holt, G. Richard. AU - Watkins, Thomas M.. AU - Yoder, Milton G.. PY - 1982/1/1. Y1 - 1982/1/1. N2 - Isolated abnormalities of the tympanic membrane have been postulated to affect tympanometry. The authors tested 33 abnormal tympanic membranes in 19 patients with tympanosclerosis and/or thin membranes (having no middle or fibrous layer) against a control group of 32 normal ears in 16 age- and sex-matched patients. All selected patients were free of middle ear disease on the basis of normal hearing, normal pneumatic otoscopic findings, and the presence of crossed acoustic reflexes or normal findings at paracentesis. All patients in the control group had normal type A tympanograms, while 20 (61 per cent) of the tympanic membranes in the experimental group produced abnormal tympanograms. Of the 20 abnormal tympanic membranes, 35 per cent were type As, 35 per cent were type Ad, 5 per cent were type B, and 25 ...

Tympanometry guidelines were expanded regarding age and probe tone. The most recent JCIH Position Statement (2019) recommended use of the 1000 Hz probe tone for infants up to nine months of age based on a 2013 study by Hoffman et al, which found greater sensitivity and specificity for the 1000 Hz probe tone in 0 to 3 months, 3 to 6 months, and 6 to 9 months. For 9- to 12-month-olds, there was greater sensitivity and specificity for the 226 Hz probe tone. Use of both the 1000 Hz and 226 Hz probe tone may be considered for use with infants between 6 and 9 months of age. Use of a 1000 Hz probe tone may also be considered for use with other populations, such as patients with Trisomy 21. Heeren (2013) found that the 226 Hz tympanogram is not an accurate predictor of middle-ear status in the Trisomy 21 population, as poor specificity of the 226 Hz tympanogram shows that the tympanogram may be over-diagnosing abnormalities of the middle-ear space, when in fact, there are none. This information is ...
CRITIQUE: The book is an excellent for the resident, novice ENT physician, the audiologist and is a must for the Au.D. student in training. Even with the many advances in imaging, otoscopy remains the cornerstone in diagnosis of ear disease. Unfortunately, significant clinical experience in examining is required to become proficient in otoscopy. The beginning student or resident will find it helpful to study the text and illustrations carefully to build a better feel for the appearance of the ear in various conditions. The experienced audiologist will find this a useful reference text to consult after viewing questionable ear pathology in everyday practice. The index is well organized and appropriately detailed allowing for a quick and accurate reference. The bibliography is adequate but in no way an exhaustive list of classical or definitive articles of the various pathology.

In this paper we demonstrate the use of the capillary pressure equilibrium theory (CPET) model to address the effects of partial saturation in order to estimate hydrocarbon saturation in a reservoir volume using acoustic impedances derived by seismic inversion. The data set used here has been donated by BHP Billiton, and is from an offshore oilfield called the Stybarrow field. The set comprises of a well with a 20-foot sandstone oil saturated pay section and 3D pre- and post-stack seismic volumes. Using the provided angle stacks and well log data, a statistical wavelet, and low impedance model, the final impedance model is computed. There are two final impedance models, derived from post-stack, and pre-stack data. The final impedance models are in agreement with one another at each of the well locations, with low impedance at the oil saturated well, and high impedance at the water saturated well. The corresponding CPET model is built based on the empirical porosity from the well log. The rock ...

NOTE: Insufficient cleaning of the spark plug may lead to spark plug failure in a very short period of time. Clean the spark plug thoroughly to avoid problems later. Remember, if a spark plug is fouling its usually a result of engine side factors or incorrect heat range selection.. Performance gain after installing the plug: A common misconception is that changing spark plugs will result in a large power increase. In most cases, removing even seriously worn out spark plugs will only result in tiny power gains, typically about 1-2% of total engine output. This could be even less for computer-controlled vehicles, primarily because most newer vehicles have more powerful ignition systems and the vehicles computer can make adjustments so that vehicle operation is not affected by the resistance generated by the spark plug.. Many people think that simply supplying more spark to the firing tip can and will combust more fuel. What they dont understand is that most new fuel injected vehicles are ...

Preheat oven to 375˚ and place a baking tray in the lower third (bottom rack). Line tart pan with foil, fill with beans or pie weights, set on tray, and bake until foil peels away easily, about 15 minutes. Carefully remove foil and beans (this is easiest done outside the oven). Return empty tart shell to oven on middle rack. Bake until golden brown all over, another 10-15 minutes or so; cool. Keep shell in tart pan and on tray until youre ready to fill it-its the safest place. ...
